How Would Switching From A High Carb Diet To A Cyclic Ketogenic Affect One's Performance In Strongman And Powerlifting Competitions?

You will have upto couple of weeks of what they call as “keto flu”, meaning you will feel low energy as your body adapts to burning fat instead of glucose. Some common symptoms are fatigue, headache, mental fog. But not everyone feels these symptoms. It is quite possible you will sail along just fine. Besides, these symptoms could be remedied by drinking plenty of water, consuming more electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium) as you lose them during the initial stages of ketosis through urination, eating more fat, eating less protein.

    Hey folks, noob here. Have been on keto for a month now, so far so good, lost 8kg's or so.
    Did not have a bad taste in my mouth except the first day of keto (incl. flu), disappeared afterwards. Now, 4 weeks later my wife tells me I stink horribly and I really have to do something about this.
    She also told me this is new, so I didnt have it the past 4 weeks. From what I gather, keto breath is supposed to appear when just starting out, and disappear once you get keto-adapted. Did I get this wrong??

    what are your stats? what are your macros? Are you diabetic, insulin resistant? Keto breath (fruity scent or acetone (nail polish) scent) happen only when very deep in ketosis and have high BG levels at the same time. In case you are diabetic (or in case you do not know if you are diabetic) get urine keto strips and use your BG meter often (if you dont have one, buy one) - measure fasting (first thing in the morning) and postprandial (45 - 60 minutes after every meal). If your urine ketone levels stay consistently over 40 and your fasting BG is over 110, and your postprandial exceeds 180 see an endocrinologist. Have also HbA1C checked.

    I only have some ketostix which are currently at the second darkest color (8 mmol/l).

What Is The Fastest Way To Get Into Ketosis, And If Once There How Will I Know Without Testing?

I am going to have to disagree with some of the other people who answered this question. The fastest and best way to get into ketosis is to dramatically decrease your carbohydrate consumption to 20 net grams (total carbs minus carbs from fiber) or fewer per day. At the same time, keep your protein moderate (50–75 g if you’re female, and 100–125 if you’re a guy), and fat at a 1:2 or even higher ratio to protein. Doing this alone will usually put your body into a state of ketosis in just a few days. You DO NOT need to buy any products, especially exogenous ketones. You want your body to make its own ketones, and buying them will only keep you from experiencing the benefits of ketosis that your body will naturally reach on its own. MCT oil is fine; I use it myself in my morning coffee for the energy benefits, but it’s not totally necessary. Also, you should not try to fast until you are fully fat adapted, which is different than being in ketosis, and can take weeks. Fasting should come naturally. Once you are fat adapted, you will find that you can go longer between meals because you just aren’t hungry. But even fasting is not absolutely necessary on the ketogenic diet.

    but weight is unaffected... also have now quite the carb creeps on the weekend.. damm..
    does keto reverse insulin resistance or just dampen it because there are no carbs and this could be a reason why there is no loss anymore?
    blood profile is perfect....thyroid a bit low but was before already.. maybe add iodine? only use sea salt right now..
    should I try to reverse diet and add carbs for insulin sensitivity?
    is this usefull or will it reawaken my insulin resistance??
